The New Orleans Saints tend to wait until the last moment before agreeing to contract with their rookies. However, this year they’ve taken a different approach.

Yesterday, the Saints inked 4-year deals with first-round pick Kenny Vaccaro (pictured), third-round pick Terron Armstead, fifth-round pick Kenny Stills, and sixth-round pick Rufus Johnson.

Vaccaro is the first first-round pick to sign with his club. Based on the current rookie wage scale, Vaccaro’s deal should be worth $9,465,782, which includes a $5,234,328 signing bonus.

All rookies will take part in the three-day Saints rookie minicamp which begins this morning in Metarie.

John Jenkins, the beefy nose tackle out of Georgia, is the only Saints rookie who remains unsigned. He was the second of the Saints two third-round picks in last month’s NFL draft.

UPDATE: 2:00 p.m. John Jenkins has agreed to a four-year deal. New Orleans has now signed all six of their 2013 draft picks.
